Reviews for A Small Town Christmas are wonderful, including this one: ” Nan Reinhardt at her best! I’m always a fan of setting, and Four Irish Brothers Winery is a great one. The story abounds with the sweet heat of a couple caught unaware, unsuspecting, and not particularly wanting to find romance.

Winemaker and single father Conor Flaherty is determined to make this Christmas holiday special for his daughter even though his family’s winery, Four Irish Brothers, is facing some challenges.

She’s not expecting that her sexy new client will have a smile that will melt her heart and remind her that there’s more to life than work.
Sam falls hard for Conor, his daughter and the small, friendly town, but can she trust her instincts and risk her heart? Sam hasn’t seen a lot of happy-ever-afters in her life, but Conor and the magic of Christmas make her want to believe

New Week; Big Gratitude

November11

This is the start of a brand new week and although I haven’t done my gratitude days for a while, I have a really good reason for my absence, which will be revealed here one week from today. In the meantime, let’s talk about…whatever.

Right off, what the heck happened to fall? I mean, the leaves started changing, we had a few brisk days and suddenly, oh my gosh! It’s winter–like below freezing temps and snow! Now, I’ll grant you, the snow didn’t stick, but the temperatures in the 20s and teens sure did! Leaves are falling off the trees like crazy up here at the lake and poor old Husband nearly froze his bum off taking the boat around to the launch to pull it for the winter. However, it is now safe in storage and we are heading in the direction of getting the cottage ready for winter as well.

I’ve been crazy busy getting ready for the release of Christmas with You–book 3 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series. That happens November 21 and then the Book Blast with Goddess Fish Promotions happens December 2 through 6. There’ll be fun prizes and giveaways during that week, so stay tuned and watch for announcements on Facebook and Twitter.
I gotta tell you, I love this story. Aidan is such a great character and Holly grew stronger and became quite a good woman by the end of the story. It’s fun to watch your characters develop as you write their story. Character arcs are probably the best part of creating a story, although setting runs a close second. Well, and secondary characters are a blast, too. I guess I love everything about writing.

Speaking of writing, I’ve got something new brewing in my head that I’m hoping will turn into a proposal for my publisher. It’s something different than I’ve ever written before, but I think I can pull it off. I have a friend who writes this genre (nope, it’s a secret until I see if my publisher is interested), so I’m going to contact him and process the idea with him and get his opinion. We’ll see…

So for now, that’s the news that’s fit to print. Be sure to check back here next week for big news! Can’t wait to share it with y’all! Until then, gratitude for this week is my family, my friends, time to write, changes coming together for the good, and always, my readers, who keep me focused on what’s next.
Remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well. ~Nan~

The Healing Summer

November6

Liz Flaherty has scored again! I was fortunate enough to preview this novel. The romance in The Healing Summer starts as a simple summer friendship, but Carol and Steven’s attraction is so clear, I couldn’t imagine they wouldn’t be together forever. Steven is my favorite kind of hero–gentle, kind, and intelligent, while I’d love to be Carol when I grow up. She’s smart and independent and knows what it means to care about other people. The secondary characters in this story give it that special warmth that is uniquely Ms. Flaherty’s voice. You’ll be rooting for Carol and Steven from the moment he rides his bike into her car.

Blurb:
When Steven Elliott accidentally rides his bike into Carol Whitney’s car at the cemetery, their out-of-control lives take on new and exciting possibilities. Long friendship wends its way into something deeper and feelings neither of them expected to experience again enrich their days and nights. But what will happen when the long summer ends and Steven leaves their hometown to once again take up his prestigious career as a cardio-thoracic surgeon and Carol loses the dream of the family, commitment, and future that she’s allowed herself to want?
Life gets in the way before either Steven or Carol are ready, and they wonder if their romance will fade and fall with the leaves when hot days turn to the briskness of autumn.

Book Blast Tour!

October28

I know I owe this blog about fourteen days of gratitude and one huge day of gratitude for something that’s in the works. I purposely haven’t posted here for a couple of reasons. One is that although I don’t really believe in jinxing something by talking about it, I’m reluctant to start celebrating before it’s time. So hold tight and I promise, there will be news. The other reason is just plain busyness. Life has been complicated and so overwhelming for the past couple of weeks. But I’m here now and with some fun news.

Goddess Fish promotions is doing a Book Blast Tour for me December 2 through 6 to help me launch Christmas with You, book 3 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series. Would love to have you sign up to participate. They send you everything you need to post, so all you have to do is post it. Merci, in advance!

I’m working on book 4 of the series and a proposal for a cozy for my publisher. Hold a good thought, okay? Gratitude for today:
Our kids and how gracious they’ve been to let us camp out in their basement while we house hunt.
Grandboy, who is such a sweet, sweet soul.
My editing work has slowed enough for me to breathe deeply at a time when deep breaths are what I need most in the world.
Hopefulness about house hunting
The lake, which is often the source of peace.

Have a good day today, mes amies, and remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well!

Days 31-39: Gratitude and I’m Okay…Really

October9

It’s so easy to get discouraged in the house-hunt, but you know, it’s all going to be okay. We’ll find the right house and we’ll get all our stuff back and it’s all going to be okay. In the meantime, we aren’t sleeping in a cardboard refrigerator box under the freeway–we’re enjoying our Son and DIL’s lovely home and we have our lake cottage. Our stuff is safely stored with our buddy Freddy’s moving and storage company and in Son’s basement, and in our cottage. Fall is here and I’ve seen four amazing sunsets in a row. I am a blessed woman.

Gratitude:
Good Tule Holiday Release party today–lots of participants and guests. Really enjoyed it!
Lee Hyat, our cover artist is a genius.
We saw two houses yesterday and are seeing two more tomorrow, so there’s stuff on the horizon.
Got a bunch of editing work done today–yay!
Made dinner two nights in a row for Husband and me–it was nice.

So…there we have it. I’m working, writing, and promoting my books. Looking forward to all the hoopla around Aidan’s book releasing November 21 and to finding the right house soon.

So, mes amies, as always hold your face to the sun, be grateful for all things, and love well.

Cover Reveal AND Preorder Links!

October7

I am overwhelmed with pleasure about the cover for my latest book, Christmas with You–Book 3 in the Four Irish Brothers Winery series from Tule Publishing. Lee Hyat, the cover designer has so nailed my brothers with each cover and Aidan’s is no exception. She got my sweet, hunky actor down to a T! Check it out and then click to preorder Christmas with You. It’ll show up on your e-reader on November 21. Also, here’s the blurb for the story. I sure hope y’all are as excited as I am!

She’s loved him all her life… but will he be there when she needs him the most? 
Disheartened and adrift after being written out of a hit TV show, actor Aidan Flaherty returns to his family’s historic winery, where he’s invested some of the fortune he’s made. As the holidays approach, Aidan becomes intrigued with the old showboat that’s dry-docked just east of town… and even more intrigued with the daughter of his former mentor, who now owns it. He decides to buy the boat and restore it to its former glory.
Single mom Holly Santos is back in River’s Edge after her divorce and she is over men in general and actors in particular. If she could only get rid of her father’s old showboat, a source of fascination for her son, Mateo. She never expects her old crush to walk into her tea shop or the fireworks that happen every time they’re in the same room.
Can Aidan convince her that he is determined to restore their shared heritage on the showboat and that he’s home to stay?

Armed with a few hundred dollars and a fake backstory, Greyson flies to Savannah, Georgia, to see if he has what it takes to chase the American Dream.
Scarlett Calhoun is a Southern Belle with a heart as big as a Georgia peach. When she meets the charming construction worker, Greyson, it isn’t long before she is embracing the holiday cheer. Soon, she’s teaching him how to cook, falling for his exotic accent and soulful eyes, and joining him on picnic lunches where they talk for hours.With Christmas Eve nearing, Greyson must fly back to Aldora and either abdicate the throne, or take his rightful place as king. Will he ignore his birthright to remain with Scarlett or will she be royally abandoned?

From Scottish lairds to billionaire businessmen, Kelsey McKnight will ignite your soul, no matter what century it lives in. Kelsey is a university-educated historian from southern New Jersey. She has married her great loves of romance, history, and literature to create her own tales of dashing heroes, sultry bad boys, and lovable heroines who have their own stories to tell. They will take you through the ballrooms of Victorian London, to the hills of the Scottish Highlands, and into New York City penthouses, all at the flip of a page. When she’s not writing, Kelsey can be found reading, drinking too much coffee, spending time with her family, and working for two separate nonprofit organizations.

Sarah Fischer works hard fighting the good fight in personnel security. She graduated with a degree in criminal justice and married the calm to her crazy. Then Sarah had a health scare and needed heart surgery. While recovering, she finally had the time to write the stories playing out in her mind. Her college romantic suspense series, Elton Hall Chronicles, is now available in its entirety on Amazon. First Semester, Second Snowfall, and Third Wheel remind you what you loved about college, show you what you missed, and make you yearn for what could have been. Sarah also has a contemporary short story in the Craving Bad anthology. In her spare time, you’ll find her with a book in her hand, at the movies, or watching just one more episode of reality TV. 

That’s all the news today, mes amies! Remember to hold your face to the sun, be grateful in all things, and love well.
